Gwern Engen (Conwy)

This is an acid sphagnum bog lake formed after moss filed an old glacial rock basin.  It is a very good site for dragonflies.

This land is common land and is open access.  To get to the car park which is just off the Sychnant Pass, take the A547 off the A55 at Conwy.  If you are approaching from the east; in Conwy, turn right onto Mount Pleasant Road and right at the junction onto Sychnant Pass Road.  If you are approaching from the south / west / north, turn left off Conwy’s one-way system into Lower Gate Street. This is the start of Sychnant Pass Road.  After about 2 miles, the car park is off a track on the left just after the hotel and just before you get to the walls of the turning for Pensychnant Estate.
